Photographer's Note

This is the detail I promised in my last post. I was amazed by how well preserved this ornamentation was. You can see this temple in my pictures Minerva Temple I and II, and similar structures in another photo. I also have descriptions of this beautiful place together with those posts. More pictures from here will come.

I decided to reduce the red cast that is usually in my pictures with this film and UV-filter. I like the warm tones they create but wanted to try something slightly different for this one, for no particular reason.

I couldn't decide how I should crop this, so I kept it pretty much as is, just took away a little of the columns from the bottom. The wall to left is maybe a little disturbing since it's so bright, but I wanted to have it for reference (so that you can see exactly where in my previous pictures this is). The picture is pretty dense as is, so I can't think of any other more powerful composition, if you have any ideas please tell me.
